Yes, there are several things that you can do with those lemons life handed to you believe it or not. Are they about to go old, moldy, stuck with a bag you bought at a Costco type store, well now you don’t have to throw your money down the drain! You can make the most of it, here’s how:
Get rid of blackheads and pimples
Just as good as Oolong tea, lemons can help your skin get rid of those pesky blackheads by gently rubbing a quarter of a lemon on your face (concentrating on clogged pore areas) then rinse face with warm water. Lemons kills nasty bacteria and the Alpha Hydroxy Acid acts a natural exfoliator for skin, reducing clogged pores and making skin appear smoother.
Throw out your toxic toner and replace with a natural alternative! Squeeze fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and apply it directly to your face before going to bed.
Make nails whiter and brighter
Rub a half of a lemon directly on fingernails to make yellowed nails whiter (warning: if you have a cut or a torn cuticle, avoid that area because it will indeed sting, so BE careful!).
Squeeze fresh lemon juice into your drinking water! The combination of lemon and water helps your stomach digest and clear out impurities (yuk!). It also gives your plain water a little kick!
Make hair silky smooth and/or lighten your locks naturally
Lemon juice is well-known as an all-natural hair lightener, but it can also add shine to dry, drab strands. Add freshly-squeezed lemon juice into a cup of water, then pour the mixture into clean, wet strands. Rinse after a few minutes to avoid lightening your hair or leave in leave in for a lighter shade.
Enjoy! Stay BEautiful!
